Deep, rocky soils and old, gnarly vines (planted in the early 1970's) combine to create a wine with an intense bouquet of honeysuckle and stone fruits. The palate explodes in the mouth, being round and fleshy, yet silky all at the same time with hints of butterscotch, marmalade, butter and barrel spice.

"The wine has concentration and texture that old vines can deliver.  It begins with stone fruit aromas mingled with buttery notes.  On the palate, there are buttery citrus flavours with hints of oak spice on the long finish."

"The nose is open with peach, apricot and honey, and showing some complexity.  The style is more luxurious and rounder with flavours of butterscotch and apricot compote."

"This single-vineyard selection is from what are believed to be BC's oldest Chardonnay vines, planted in the early 1970s. Almost entirely fermented with wild yeasts, it remains young, leesy and still a bit yeasty in the nose. Fresh apple, white melon and cucumber fruits are balanced and buoyed with moderate acidity. Aging 16 months in half new French oak barrels adds a toasty note. Tuck this away another year or two and it should continue to improve."
